Fathers day

Made dad a birthday cake. Unfortunately, I didn't manage to get a picture of the finished product (dammit). I can say it did get completely demolished though! Even my brother liked it.

This is the card I made for fathers day. Very simple just used a couple of embossing folders and some cordinations card. I was nice and quick. Dad loved it so am very proud. =)

Auntie Birthday

A nice quick birthday card I made for my partners Aunties birthday. 
The stamp came from a papercraft magazine (I can't remember which one) as did the background paper. The magazine was £4.99 and the stamps (after looking around shopping) are actually worth £12 so personally I think it was a BARGAIN! =) I love a bargain!

Mum's Tiered Birthday Cake

I decided to try and do a tiered birthday cake for my Mum this year rather than a normal single layered. I thought a tiered would be best as my mum (apparently) was the only one who likes carrot cake so I did a 4 inch on for her, my sister and I are on a diet so I did a 6 inch low fat ginger cake for us and everyone else eats chocolate so I did an 8 inch chocolate cake. I have decided I need more than one day to do a tiered cake as I only finished the cake 10 minutes before my mum actually turned up. Nothing like cutting it close!!!
I used my new Square Cake Pan from Lakeland and I have to say I LOVE it sooooooo much. I was recommended this cake pan by @nixabix on her blog Nom! The Indulgent Baking Blog and I am so grateful to her for it. I am thinking of getting more dividers those.
There isn't really much more to say so here is the pictures.

Just a quick note. I did the Happy Birthday on the Cricut Cake =) I do love that machine. It is a lovely BEAUTIFUL machine!!! I'll get a picture and post it one day =)

Baby shower cake

I didn't make this cake but I had to share it. This was last year several months before my new nephew was born. He is now 3 1/2 months old.
I thought this cake was amazing. The decoration was brilliant. The cake was for 3 expectant mothers and was huge. They all took a third of the cake home. Only one of the 3 mothers knew what they were having. My sister got the middle section (part blue part pink) and she had no idea or even an incling.

I just wish I was this good but hey I'm slowly getting there =)
